Where do we go from here? With the magnitude of the breaks and rallies the entire cattle industry has experienced thus far, that question is on everyone’s mind. An upcoming free CattleFax webinar will address the question, as well as provide an outlook for the cow-calf and entire beef industry for the remainder of 2018.
The CattleFax Trends+ Cow-Calf Webinar will be held May 23, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. MT. To participate in the webinar and access program details, producers and industry leaders simply need to register online at https://www.cattlefax.com/#!/about.
One of the most aggressive U.S. beef cowherd expansions in the last four decades has increased beef supplies and caused cow-calf profitability to be reduced back toward long-term levels. As profits have narrowed, well-informed producers can maintain healthy margins by adjusting production, marketing and risk management plans with increasing supplies in mind.
CattleFax analysts will discuss a variety of topics in the one-hour session, including:
– Cattle and feedstuff market projections for the next 12 to 18 months
– Outlook of the summer and fall calf markets for 2018
– Review of the recent Cow-Calf Survey
The Trends+ webinar series informs cattle producers about current market conditions and provides providing decision-friendly advice regarding management decisions. The analysis and strategies shared through the webinar series has reached more than 5,000 producers, and sponsorship from Elanco Animal Health is making the seminar free for all attendees.
